SIDE NOTE: I'm still up for One-Short story suggestions to get my writing going. I know for a fact that my writing though definitely not the best if far better than my drawing
The title says it all. As an impatient person, I found it hard to pay attention to complicated tutorials and other thing that I thought would never help but after doing so I finally managed to get a better grasp on colouring, shading and anatomy than ever before. Anatomy...dear Lord I hate you. Before, though my drawings where done without those shapes and lines ya use to make them better so they looked all lopsided. Darn.
Anatomy drawing is a pain as much as it is a blessing. Dear God I hate drawing feet. And noses. And torsos.
But my drawings still look amateurish and like many I look at awesome Deviantartists and their works and think: GIVE ME YOUR SECRETS. HOW THE FUDGE DO YOU MANAGE THIS.
But most of the time I'm just thinking the work is amazing
One problem I have is expressions and making the bodies of my characters look more flexible and expressive if you know what I mean- not stiff looking. And people even draw MOUTHS in a way that makes them look like actual mouths. I keep drawing things and getting slightly better and thinking: Am I missing something here ? Does it just take time? Good programs and freaking TABLETS?
Or all of it?
I have a loooong way to go. Maybe I should stick to da writing.
AND ANOTHER THING.
To you people, amazing that you are, who favorite my Lombax and other R&C stuff may have heard of stuff that went on in 2009-2010 I think. I've only been here for 7 or so months so I had no inkling about it, but from what I've heard things got out of control with the fandom and everything was about lombaxes with over the top designs and so on- Which is a shame because I heard it had once been a good community. I can't help but think that this thing can happen anywhere with Fandoms that tend to focus on one thing, so I decided I should begin drawing my non-lombax OC's.
But people still have good Lombaxes and still work on them. The Ratchet and Clank movie, in freaking two years time (seriously I should have waited till 2014 for finding out, because it seems so far away now O.O) may bring more fandom. Hope it goes back to stuff about the Lombax dimension and so on.
AND JEEZ, RATCHET AND CLANK, YOU CAN'T END THE SERIES WITHOUT HAVING CLOSURE ON THE LOMBAXES. No.
But I ended up making a Villain, Orange. Yes I called him Orange. He's a lombax, too. His hobbies include screwing with you head, terrifying you with mind games, creeping you out, smirking with lidded eyes, humming catchy songs and drinking tea while watching you drink your own that he has poisoned.
I've been writing and drawing Bravestarr again. I really need to get back into Sly Cooper and Rise of the Guardians and finish the stories I started around a few months ago XD Pfft. I have some pictures that need colouring but I can't be booootheeered.
